Interesting article. Report
This article is so dated, I'm surprised Spark People is still running it. Please update your articles, SP!!

Meta-analysis is a lazy means of reporting. One cannot draw all the study results into a database and report the complied data as it does not demonstrate the conditions of the individual studies.

This article is old and no longer valid. For current data, one should read more recent studies (not meta analysis reports.) Report
Good need-to-know information, thanks! Report
This article was written in 2011... newer research is saying maybe Not! Report
I only drink alcohol a few times a year because alcohol is a poison.

And if that’s not enough to get you to stop drinking it maybe the fact that it’s high in non-nutritive calories and carbohydrates and will make you gain weight.

Good article. Good need-to-know information. Thanks. Report

NIH just pulled a study on alcohol consumption; turns out some of the researchers were a little too close to folks in the alcohol industry. Report
I notice there's no mention of alcohol being a Group I carcinogen nor that WHO considers no amount of alcohol consumption safe due to the cancer risk. Report
